Weddings bring out the best in us. Weddings are a time to showcase traditions and time honoured elegance. Weddings also allow us to celebrate with some of the best in party decor, fashion, and entertainment. A great wedding brings together all of the elements of style, tradition, food, fashion, and entertainment. It offers these elements in unison to the couple in order to create a day that will be engrained in their hearts and minds forever. This is why it is imperative that everything is perfect for the big day. Below you will find a checklist of the most important facets of planning for a stylish wedding.

Before You Begin
Before you can even begin to plan for your wedding, you must first draw up a budget. Once you know how much you can afford to spend on stylish venues, food, entertainment, and other elements of the wedding, then you can begin planning the details. Your first act after creating a budget should be collecting a “planning team.” During this process, you will find it helpful to hire a wedding planner to assist with the numerous details.

Preparing your guest list and searching for venues should be one of your first moves. Look for stylish ceremony and reception sites that fit the vision you have for your big day. Consider your options for entertainment and how they will work in your wedding spaces. Would you like a pianist, violinist, a DJ, or a band? Once you have a general idea of what you are looking for, you can begin interviewing the vendors for your wedding.

Now that you have the date, venues, and guest listed nailed down, you can begin sending out your save-the-date cards and invitations. If you would like invitations that are professionally addressed, hire a calligrapher.

Do your research and find a caterer for the reception. Additionally interview and book a cake designer. Cakes are especially important as they are the centerpiece of your weddings culinary delights.

Photography Check
Find a photographer or videographer who has style consistent with your wedding. For an epic and stylish shoot, consider Bloomsbury wedding videography. Bloomsbury is one of the world’s top 25 wedding cinematographers.

Floral Arrangements And Decor
Floral arrangements and decor should be in keeping with the theme of your wedding. If you have hired a professional wedding planner, they will help coordinate the floral and decorative arrangements for your event.

The style of what you wear and how you wear it is essential in creating the perfect day. Order your bridesmaids’ dresses and wedding dress months in advance. Later, you can adjust and fit the dresses if any changes need to made. Interview and “try out” several stylists and make-up artists. After all, you only get one day to get it right. Additionally, the men’s wear should be planned for several months in advance to accommodate for fittings.

As this moment, a lot of brands and labels are now getting ready to release, or at least their lookbook, for the next year’s collection. Of course, they’ll get down for spring and summer first. And the first to see was this brand called Nonnative that is locally in Japan. I think, these lookbook styling really speaks to my style as they’re pretty simply and too basic that are indeed comfortable especially in summer time. And these pieces were too light to wear as the main material use, as I can see, was a cotton. Yes! pick a pieces that are made of cotton for summer as they are the most comfortable and light to wear and you cant go wrong for your fashion as you have any of these cotton on.

Best Custom Jewelleries For 2016

October 6, 2016

The 2016 version of the Summer Olympic Games is now underway in Rio. Forget about the many controversies that come along with this event every four years. Focus, if you will, on the true spirit of the games and the true beauty of the effort that a majority of the athletes put into their competition.  In many instances one individual is facing incalculable odds while striving to become an Olympic champion.

What the public sees is the ten seconds of the hundred metre final or a swim that takes well under a minute to capture a new world record.  What the public does not see is the lifetime of sacrifice, training, joy, and sorrow that brings these highly skilled, focused and determined competitors to the place that they are.

These are unique individuals with a character and vision all their own.  They strive to be the very best they can be accepting nothing less than perfection in what they do. Nothing, but nothing except ultimate victory is within their understanding

Perhaps it may seem odd to compare the design of custom jewellery to the making of a world class athlete but think about it for a moment.  The raw talent of muscle and sinew is molded and shaped through effort and determination, in the case of the athlete, into a unique competitor.  The custom jeweller creates from a wide variety of raw materials a unique piece through the same dedication, effort and determination.  There can be no mistaking the beauty of the finished product in the case of an athlete.  How could one question the beauty of the result as a custom ring, bracelet, or pendant is born at the hands of a master jeweller.

Just as athletes strive for years to arrive at the pinnacle of their discipline, so do jewellers who take on the challenge of creating custom pieces.  An Olympic medal may not be within your grasp but reaping the reward of a custom designed piece of jewellery certainly is!

How to Prepare Kids for Blood Tests

October 4, 2016

When kids reach a certain age, they’ll need to visit a lab to take blood tests. Doctors examine blood in order to gather important medical information while children are sick or in the process of getting treatments. Since nurses use needles to extract the blood, most kids have problems remaining calming throughout their visit. If your child is scared or nervous, you can make the experience more pleasant by following a few easy steps.

Discuss the Test Process in Advance

Many children will panic if they visit a lab for blood work without notice. If you tell your child what can be expected throughout the procedure, stress and fear won’t be a big issue. However, you shouldn’t discuss the procedure too far in advance because your kid may begin to worry excessively until the day of the appointment. To achieve the best results, try to have the discussion about two days before the testing process.

Understand Your Role

Your role during the test will vary based on the child’s age. Young children have different levels of fear, so they’ll need a lot of attention throughout the procedure. You shouldn’t provide any negative reactions at the lab during stressful situations because the vibes will affect how the child behaves. For example, when the nurse arrives with the needle, try to remain calm so that your kid won’t worry.

Use Distractions

Younger kids and older children react differently during medical treatments, so you must use different distractions tactics. Toddlers who are two years old can be distracted with toys, noisy gadgets, and bubbles. Slightly older kids should hold a toy while the blood is extracted. If your child is almost a teenager, books and breathing exercises can reduce stress levels before the test is conducted.

When children learn how to take blood tests while they’re young, they experience less fear during important procedures in the future. An ifa test, cholesterol test, and other examinations that involve blood extractions are very beneficial and shouldn’t be avoided. This is why you must give your kid your full support during every doctor’s appointment.
